My parents with my three kiddos this summer. (Note my dad's Runner's World tee!)

Some Reflective Moments on a Long Run

My mother was very much on my mind during my weekend long run: At 86, she’s having hip replacement surgery today. I’m spending this week at my childhood home in Connecticut to take care of my dad while my mom is in the hospital and rehab. My mom, from hardy stock, is strong, stoic, and in relatively good health. Still, it was hard not to let concerns and thoughts of “what if?” cast a slight pall over an otherwise exquisitely gorgeous early fall day.

With about 15 miles to cover, I wound my way along sun-dappled roads lined with lovely homes, many built nearly two centuries ago. But it was a house completed a mere 63 years ago (“recently” in New England terms) that made me stop for a closer look: the Philip Johnson Glass House…

Fairy Runmothers Dimity (pink) and Sarah (blue) ready to fly at start of Disneyland Half

The Gals Gab about Disneyland Half-Marathon and Other Races

Despite just seeing each other—and their families—in Disneyland over Labor Day, the gals have a lot of catching up to do. Listen in as they recount their debut runDisney race, which they both adored. But find out why they each ditched their respective pace groups and how Dimity cleverly had Sarah’s son climb an obelisk at the Magic Kingdom to keep him in her sights, post-race. Talk turns to Dimity’s recent “aquabike” race and Sarah’s final 20-miler for the Twin Cities Marathon. Be forewarned: Dimity’s bum-crack comes up in conversation!

If you’re digging our podcasts, we’d be super-grateful if you’d take a minute (because we *know* you have so many to spare!) to write a review on iTunes…

Okay, so it's staged, but it was too cute not to use (right?!).

Winner of lucy Fall Race Outfit

It’s fitting we’re announcing the winner of a sassy race outfit from our fave lucy activewear as we’re at one of our favorite races this weekend–a ZOOMA women’s half-marathon. It’s a new location–Falmouth in Cape Cod, Mass.–but same great girlfriends-getaway vibe. Loads of members of the tribe here, including Lisa Dennis, Danielle Whippel, Erica Richards, Phoebe VanScoy-Giessler, Michelle SanAntonio, Nicole DeCruz, and many others, which makes it even more fun. Erica even helped us out by taking a bunch of photos of us (trust us, we have our reasons). I’m going hoarse, but all the gabbing and laughter is worth it…

Smitha Barki, 36, calls herself the Faux Runner, but we say she’s every bit the real deal. We had the opportunity to meet Smitha, of Marietta, Ga., at our Atlanta house party earlier this year. Read on to learn more about this mom of two girls, ages 6 and 3, who happen to share her love of running skirts.

Best recent run: Two months ago, I had an injury scare: I was told that I had a stress fracture. I spent two weeks in crutches and in tears before I got a second opinion. The first run I took after I was told that it was actually severe shin splints misdiagnosed was the most amazing run ever…
